East Coast Datacom, Inc., a Florida-based communications specialist, announces availability of the Stateful Traffic Generator®, model STG-10G based on a well know traffic generation engine, D-ITG. The STG-10G is composed of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that wraps the D-ITG engine, INTEL® DPDK Fast Packet Technology and other test tools.

Using D-ITG, the STG-10G is capable of producing IPv4 and IPv6 traffic by accurately replicating the workload of current Internet or typical user applications. The platform supports 8-Ports 10/100/1000 and 4-Ports of 10GbE traffic generation managed via the easy to use GUI. This allows users to perform load tests on hardware prior to deployment and to simulate wired or wireless network traffic behavior.

The D-ITG generation engine provides many interesting and unique features. Thanks to it the STG-10G is also a network measurement tool able to measure the most common performance metrics such as throughput, delay, jitter and packet loss at the packet level. The STG-10G can generate traffic following stochastic models for packet size (PS) and inter departure time (IDT) that mimic application-level protocol behavior. By specifying the distributions of IDT and PS random variables, it is possible to choose different renewal processes for packet generation: by using characterization and modeling results from literature, STG-10G is able to replicate statistical properties of traffic of different well-known applications such as Telnet, VoIP - G.711, G.723, G.729, Voice Activity Detection, Compressed RTP - DNS, network games.

At the transport layer, the STG-10G currently supports UDP, TCP, ICMP, DCCP, SCTP and soon to be released support for IGMP. Additionally an FTP-like passive mode is also supported to conduct experiments in the presence of NATs, and it is possible to set the TOS (DS) and TTL IP header fields. The STG-10G also supports Pcap files with an easy to use Pcap player.

Additional technology from INTEL® called DPDK Fast Packet Technology was integrated into the STG-10G that allows wire line rates even for tiny 64byte packets. The combination of D-ITG and INTEL® DPDK technology allows the STG-10G to generate traffic at comparable rates to FPGA based proprietary systems at half the price.

East Coast Datacom worked in collaboration with the D-ITG authors who have over 25 publications in the field of IP Traffic Generation. The easy to use Graphical User Interface(GUI) is designed with closed and open source software that present a unique product.

With a host of user features, ease of use and free software upgrades included in a 3-Year warranty, the STG-10G is well positioned for budget conscious buyers.
